New Flower Dress

Two years ago I made a dress just like this one for my oldest daughter, a combination of crochet and sewing. My daughter is way to big for it now and because the dress was white and she was 4 back then, the dress is more a yellow/light brownish than white nowadays. Not something my youngest daughter want to take over from her sister. So I made her a new one.

In the craft store I saw this beautiful royal blue yarn. I really wanted it, but didn't know what to make from it at first, but I think this dress is the perfect project!




I used the African Flower for a lot of projects in the meantime. I wrote a tutorial for it, that you can find here (you have to scroll down a bit).



This is what the original dress looked like.

  11. Liz, you did such a beautiful job with this dress and the original! I love your color choices. I can imagine that a white dress doesn't stay white long with a little one, but it's still so pretty. :) Thank you for sharing at the "all things handmade" link party on the Go Crochet Crazy Blog (www.GoCrochetCrazy.blogspot.com). I hope to see you there again this Friday!

  12. Liz these are really beautiful dresses and I can see why your daughters would want to wear them. They have so much more interest when there is crocheting on them. Your girls are very lucky to have a mom that makes such pretty clothes for them.
